    ----------------------------
    Background
    ----------------------------

    Tess does not remember much about her early childhood. Her grandmere simply waves it off saying that it's a mere coping mechanism and she's too afraid to disagree. From the pictures that are still left over, his mother truly loved her. Most of her baby pictures are with her, and the only one she does have of her father is the family portrait taken for the estate. She was merely four years old when her parents died from a bombing. She did not remember what they sounded like but she sometime hums a song that to her brings her comfort.

    Her parental figures came in the form of her grandmere Amelie who insists should live up to her potential, and her guardian Anthony. Growing up, she remembered brief instances of him, he was always smiling and giving her toys. It was when they were alone when his sunny smiles and his cheery disposition become something akin to real life. He never once prevented her from doing anything, but the expectation of perfection is there. She grew up with her picture being taken nonstop. From gossip magazines speaking about her mourning on the anniversary of her parents' deaths or how she would soon be betrothed for the tradition needed to continue. She doubted it. Her grandmere called her the Ice Princess in half-truths. She does not have many people who are close, and for those to be close, they survived a lot of frostbite from her sharp tongue. The only one that has managed to have some semblance of peace is Connor who she grew up with. Her grandmere insists that he is a good match and she finds herself sick with her grandmother plotting any unions anytime soon.
    After all opulence and Politics have surrounded her life, and in some way she's taken this to hide her true self. And in the first chance she got to get out of the British spotlight she did.

    Beauxbatons was a perfect escape, and Anthony gave her what she wanted by allowing her to attend. There she camouflaged herself behind the silk uniforms and the air of propriety that kept people out of her business. She thrived there, having some resemblance of childhood until Anthony called her into his office during her summer. He informed her that now that he was taking a higher position in the ministry he wanted her closer to study the politics she will most likely need to enter to. The Holmes have weight in the British world and she could not find herself disagreeing. With a heavy heart she packed her things and moved to London.

    This is her first year at Hogwarts and while knows no one, she figures she has but a few years left before she can escape to Paris.
